Victorian - Back
     The Tailcoat needs very little introduction. It is probably one of the most impressive coats available. This cut-in tail coat was adopted for all dress occasions and by 1850's was long-bodied and sleek. As early as 1860 it was worn for formal evening dress. The basic principal of cutting a dress-coat had not changed since 1840, only variations in proportions. This coat is available in either single or double breasted version. Velvet trim can be added to the collar or collar and cuffs, if desired. The single breasted version is shown. Two cloth covered buttons are close the front and are supplied, but not sewn on.

    Because of the short waist length of this coat, if one wears a vest it will show at the bottom of the coat front. This is quite normal and is the reason why vests usually matched either the trousers or coat so that the vest would blend in and not create a "scene " at the bottom of the coat. Proper shirt for this coat is the Pleated Front Dress Shirt.

    Our civilian tails coat is made from quality lighter weight woolens than our military frockcoat.

    This REPRODUCTION item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).

    Periods: The style of these coats changed over time, mostly in the collar, sleeve and body fit.

       1800/1816-1830: This has the stand and fall collar, it is cut narrower across the shoulders, a smaller sleeve hole, a more of a tubular sleeve and a more tailored body. When made correctly it is much less comfortable than the 1830 and later coats. We currently do not offer this period of coat. If you are interested, call is to talk about it.

       1830-1850 (Dickens and more): This has the rise and fall collar, it is cut narrower across the shoulders, a smaller sleeve hole, a more of a tubular sleeve and a more tailored body. When made correctly it is much less comfortable than the 1850 and later coats. Because most people do not like the true period cut/fit, we modify it somewhat in the body, shoulder and sleeve hole fit to make it more acceptable to modern taste. It is in between the American Civil War fit and the correct earlier fit.

       1850 On (Victorian: Civil War / Old West): This is our standard coat. There were style changes to this coat over time, mostly in the collar and lapels. Sometimes there were wide collars and sometimes narrow collars. We cannot cater to the various changes, so we only make the version shown. It has a somewhat wide collar and is most appropriate for 1850 through 1900.
